Back to Herman basics – Part 2 – Herman Banana Loaf Cake
Another Herman cake I have been meaning to try is a Banana version. As I was baking three different cakes last night this is only a Half Herman recipe so I could fit it into a 450g/1lb loaf tin.
Herman Banana Loaf Cake
- 112g sugar
- 112g flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 82ml oil
- 1 egg
- 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
- Half Portion of Herman
Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas 4. Sift the dry ingredients into a large bowl. Combine the other ingredients in another bowl then add this to the dry ingredients. Mix gently until all combined. Pour into a greased and floured or lined loaf tin.
Bake for about 50 minutes – 1 hour, covering with silver foil after 30 minutes to stop the top browning too much.
General Appearance: Looks just like the banana loaf cake that I usually make, the middle split too revealing the lighter colour cake inside, super.
Aroma: Sweet, baked, ripe bananas!
Texture: Moist and light, perfect banana loaf texture.
Taste: I only put two bananas in this cake, I usually put 3 in the loaf cake recipe that I make, but it still tasted great, possibly the Herman cake I am most pleased with so far.
Another post coming in a few more minutes, such a good job I can touch type, put the kids in bed too since my last post!
